Pattern 9589 - Special XL

Scarves and Shawls

These super chunky accessories are just the thing if you want a quick knit. There are four designs to choose from; a mesh scarf, shaped garter stitch shawl, Lace ladder shawl and a faggoting shawl. Faggoting stitch gives a really interesting open trelliswork effect; it is made by working a combination of knit, knit 2 together and yarn over stitches.
